    I thought that Mona was banned from the kitchen. Anything more than brewing coffee or microwaving ramen noodles being beyond her abilities.

    One wonders if her mom ever tried to teach her how to cook.

    The sky is falling! The sky is falling! (No, really. You’ve all read or heard about the 33000 m.p.h. meteor that exploded over the southern Urals with the force of 20-30 Hiroshima atomic bombs?)
    Well, this is even worse!
    Even I (single old fart) can cook better than Mona!

    re: sisyphos.

    Yes, I read about the 7 to 10 ton meteorite that smacked into Chebarkul lake 78km from Chelyabinsk at a maximum of 10,000mph, and thus with a kinetic energy of about 23 tons of TNT or 15 tons of dynamite. The sonic boom of its passage must have been like an ICBM. (If it had been 200,000 to 300,000 tons, it would have leveled part of the city as it passed by, not just broken 2.15 million square feet of windows on that side of the city.)
    The rock melted a neat round hole in the ice. The videos of the police checking it out showed them having driven large vehicles to points near the hole, indicating how thick the ice was.
    One wonders why no video footage from the town of Chebarkul. Admittedly, it probably was moving pretty slow by the time it got there, judging from the circular hole, rather than a long cut in the ice/snow, but someone must have seen it or a security camera must have seen it.
    Four days before that, a fireball was spotted over Sunriver at their Nature Observatory.
    The day of the Chelyabinsk event, a large meteorite was seen over San Francisco, despite the tremendous sky glow.

    One could get the idea that we have been passing through a debris field in space.
